How I Feel About Books

This is how I feel about books.  My question is, is it BECAUSE I live in Bolivia where, until recently, access to books was extremely limited and there are hardly any public free well-stocked libraries?  Or is it how I feel about books IN SPITE of the fact that I’ve lived practically my whole adult life in Bolivia?  Hmmmmmm……..

“When you sell a man a book, you don’t sell just 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue, you sell him a whole new life.  Love and friendship and humor and ships at sea by night.  There’s all heaven and earth in a book.” – Christopher Morley
